The second GIRLGAMER Esports Festival event has been announced, this time taking place at the gorgeous Casino Estoril in Portugal, July 20-22. Team Dignitas' CS:GO Female team will compete as one of the four invited teams in the CS:GO tournament for a share of the €10,000 prize pool.

Team Dignitas is the reigning champion, having won the previous edition in Macau. Time will tell if they can do it again, but one thing is for sure, this is going to be a blast of a tournament with the best teams in the world!

The underlying idea of GIRLGAMER was born from the belief that esports competitions should be universal and inclusive. However, the female representation in the professional Esports scene is still very low. Therefore, as a way to develop and motivate women’s competitiveness, we have created GIRLGAMER.- Telmo Silva, Founder and CEO of Grow uP eSports

We look forward to cheering for our squad when they bring the black and yellow colors to Portugal in July. Keep your eyes open for more information as we get closer to the event! #DIGWIN
